2000, 17(1): 80-83.
[Abstract](1162) [PDF](238)
According to the growth pattern of the rhizome , bamboo was distinguished in two main types by Rivieres (1879) firstly :i. g. monopodial and sympodial bamboos. McClure (1966) used two new terms , leptomorph and pachymorph , to describe the different rhizomes growth pattern .However , some sympodial bamboos , like Pseudostachyum ,Racemobambusa and Sinarundinaria spp ., have scattered culms similar to monopodial bamboos due to the elongation of the culm neck .In this paper it deals with only the real monopodial bamboos .Studies on the species diversity of monopodial bamboos started at the beginning of the 19th century .Michaux (1803)in Flora Breali-Americanna created the first monopodial bamboo genus , Arundinaria Michaux .Thousands of publication about new taxa or revision are exist .At moment 35 genera belonging to monopodial bamboos were recorded .But 11 ~ 21 genera are accepted by taxonomists only .Reports about ecological and genetic diversity are very limited . Only a few papers are available .It is urgent to enhance the research work on these aspects .As for utilizaton of monopodial bamboos , a lot of valuable species are neglected .The development of new processing techniques will promote the utilization of bamboo wood greatly .

[Abstract](989) [PDF](156)
Architectural culture is the historical heritage of development of technical science , social science , the humanities , religions , philosophy and arts. As one of cultural forms , architectural culture reflects the generality of general culture .The generality is as follows :the constituent layer of culture itself ;dimensional space-time layer caused by different time and space ;entirety of systems and dispersion of concrete substances constituted by multilayer ;obscurity of forms ;the medium among concepts ;the succeed-change quality in the course of development . Architectural culture also stresses its own feature-genius loci .The development of architectural culture is logical reconstruction of such factors as production relations , national characters , natural environment and etc .It reflects both complexity of development of architectural culture and boundless increasing of architectural culture .

[Abstract](1182) [PDF](187)
Early diagnosis of root rot of Chinese strawberry could help achieve an effective and economic prevention effect.The research was carried out to investigate its occurrence conditions and the simulated (root cutting) symptoms . A single tree demonstrated such chief symptoms as an increase in blind buds , paleness of learves , increase in abnormal fallen leaves , as well as death of new tiny tips which grew on old trunks .The withering of some thin roots and root nodules were the early symptoms of root systems . Damaged roots mostly occurred at the lower part of hillside and withered before others .The symptoms caused by leaf pests and physiological diseases should be differentiated from those caused by root rot during diagnosis . It is suggested that a group of trees be regarded as a big tree in diagnosis , and the death of a sick single tree as initial symptoms of the group .
